This was a great location and Kate and her husband met as at a very early hour to get our luggage. She then met us back at mid-day so we didn't have to waste any time. The rooms are very comfortable and although the in-suite bath is small it still allowed for the three of us to not to have to spend too much time with the necessities so that we were able to maximize out visit. Very nicely appointed with towels and such so we did not want for anything in our two day stay. Even a bottle of water and cookies and chocolate in the fridge.
The location in Temple Bar was great. I had worrried about noise at night, but owner had assured me that apartment was located in quiet area of Temple Bar and noise would not be a problem. Unfortunately that was not the case. We had very little sleep Saturday and Sunday nights because of excessive noise in the courtyard outside the apartment.
The apartment we rented from Kate M. at the Old Music Hall was excellent! The Temple Bar location is perfect: just down the street from the AirLink shuttle bus, Christchurch Cathedral at one end, and Trinity College at the other, and surrounded by restaurants, bars, and shops. In spite of being so close to the fray, however, the apartment is as quiet as if we were in the country.
As with any historic building of that age, though, one must expect some idiosyncrasies, and the Old Music Hall is no different. The water can be very loud and alarming, at time sounding like it is in its violent death throes, but it works fine and was not too troublesome otherwise.
Our gracious hostess, Kate, met us at the shuttle and walked us to the apartment to show us around, which was great, and very helpful. The apartment was well-appointed and stocked with some essentials upon arrival, which was also very helpful and appreciated after an overnight flight.
All in all, we had a fabulous stay, and I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
Kate's apartment was perfect for our 3 night stay in Dublin. The apartment was cute, clean and very comfortable and Kate had thoughtfully left milk, juice and chocolates in the fridge for us which was an unexpected delight and much appreciated. The apartment is in the BEST location in Dublin - right beside Temple Bar but out of the hustle and bustle in a quiet apartment block. And with Darkey Kelly's pub (brilliant pub with live music every night) just out the back gate who could ask for more. We would definitely book this apartment again if we were lucky enough to come back to Dublin.
Great location. It was nice car to be on a quiet street in such a busy area. The apartment was comfortable and well appointed.
Superb apartment ! Couldnt be better situated for all city centre activities, near bus stops and walking distance to most attractions.
Kate was fabulous with helping us finding our bearings to even doing a small shopping for our arrival.
Excellent helpful info from start to finish ! Highly recommended.
Kate was amazing! We arrived at 5:30am and she made it possible that we could check into our unit in the early morning; this was so helpful after our long flight to Dublin. Kate was easy going and had a lovely suite prepared. The suite was great! Clean, fresh towels, fresh sheets, wifi, and cozy living room. The location can't be beat. We were within walking distance of everything downtown Temple bar. Can't say enough great things about this suite and Kate. Thanks, Kate for a wonderful stay. I'm recommending you to my friends that are heading to Dublin in June.
